No other team is more experienced and qualified than Major, Lindsey & Africa.

Whether you are a prospective lateral partner or a firm seeking to grow, we lead you through flawless transitions that deliver optimal value for all parties.

Notre Focus à Paris

Le marché juridique français est à la fois sophistiqué et unique en ce qu’il fonctionne différemment des marchés américains et britanniques. Le recrutement d’associés "latéraux" exige donc de travailler avec des professionnels du recrutement qui possèdent une expérience et une connaissance approfondies des spécificités du marché français.

Le cabinet de conseil en recrutement juridique Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA) est reconnu comme étant le plus important dans le monde. Composé de professionnels expérimentés, le cabinet entretient des relations étroites avec les professionnels juridiques.

Tirant profit de notre expérience aux États-Unis, et grâce à la position de leader de notre "Partner Practice Group" sur le marché londonien, notre équipe de consultants travaille en étroite collaboration avec des cabinets d’avocats américains, britanniques et français établis en France, dans tous les domaines juridiques, afin de les aider dans leurs stratégies de croissance.

Le "Partner Practice Group" collabore également avec des associés et des équipes cherchant à changer de structure.

MLA prend en considération les questions de diversité à l'occasion de chacun de ses mandats de recherche.  Nous sommes d'ailleurs engagés sur les questions de diversité et d’inclusion dans la communauté juridique depuis notre création.

Que vous soyez un cabinet d’avocats, un(e) associé(e) ou une équipe, nous serions ravis de vous rencontrer en personne à Paris; ou par d’autres moyens tant que les restrictions sanitaires resteront en vigueur.


Our Focus on Paris

The French legal market is sophisticated and distinct.  It operates differently from the US and UK markets. Working with search professionals who have a deep understanding and experience of the lateral process coupled with awareness of the nuances of the Paris market is essential in delivering lateral partner talent.

Major, Lindsey & Africa (“MLA”)is the largest  and most experienced legal search firm in the world. The firm has unrivaled relationships within the legal profession. Leveraging our US origins and expertise as well as our market-leading Partner Practice Group in London, our team of consultants work closely with US, UK and French law firms in Paris across all practices to support them in achieving their strategic growth objectives.

The Partner Practice Group also works with individual partners and teams seeking to move to a new law firm.

MLA considers every search a diversity search; we are committed to diversity, inclusion and belonging in the legal profession and have been since our inception.

Whether you are a law firm or an individual partner or team, we would be delighted to meet you in Paris (or speak during the current pandemic restrictions).
